CLUTCH LIMIT SWITCH-'94 -148K MILES

1994 Ford Escort

1994 ford Escort - 148K miles- Sometimes I have to depress clutch 2-3 times before engine will start. Should I replace the clutch limit switch and where is it located?
Thanks!

It is adjustable and located in the top area of the clutch area. It is not a limit switch but a safety switch so it cannot be started in gear. Easy to replace if you are 3' tall and have 2" diameter arms.

Is the " clutch area" you mentioned near the top of the clutch pedal area or is the safety switch under the hood at the rear of the engine.
Thanks.
